Being Thankful and Sewing Room Tip of the Day

I have been missing in action on my blog lately.
Life has been so busy and so many circumstances have prevented me from having time to post.
We did get through harvest, which seemed to go on forever this year.
I am very thankful that our family and other farming families in our area had a safe harvest.
The long hours and working with big machinery is a recipe for a farm accident, but we try our best to be safety minded.  
There have been some health issues with a family member that has made our family extremely thankful for all the wonderful relationships that we have nurtured through the years.
 I have a new job!
I am a sewing machine mechanic and quilting teacher!
It has been an adjustment, but it works perfectly with my schedule.

Last winter I was working on a Christmas quilt.  I am hoping to have it on my bed by Christmas!
We will see what happens :)

I also started another quilt because I couldn't wait!  
Have you ever brought a book home and couldn't wait to get the project started even though you know you shouldn't.
Oh well--I guess that is where the term UFO's comes from in the quilting world.

Here is another sewing room tip:
Organize your quilting books by category.
It saves time and frustration trying to find a book that you need.
Thanks Mom for the tip of the day :) 

Hope everyone has had a Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Quilting!
